The word hater in modern American speak is often used to describe someone
who is simply expressing a generally cynical or pessimistic opinion.
There are many local events in the US that don't get published to this
talk-us email list, nor do they get added to the event calendar on the OSM
wiki. All of the OSM in person meetings that I have been able to attend
have been positive experiences for me.
I am in favor of making use of publicly available geodata to enhance the
data that we collect on the ground.
Recently, I've been deliberately incorporating exercising into my OSM
efforts. I often go running for at least a mile, then walk around and
capture some photos and notes on my phone, and then run home. I think it's
great that if I use the RunKeeper application on my phone, then I can visit
runkeeper.com to see my route overlaid on top of a map that is generated
with OSM data.
I recently added some trails to OSM through the woods (some of these trails
were just built in summer 2014):
Multi-modal routing based on OSM data is also used at our local public
transportation agency: http://ride.trimet.org/ I've seen improvements that
I have made to the road and trail network propagate to this site.
http://maps.me/ is a great mobile app, which utilizes OSM data to display
maps on the go without the need for an internet connection. I love seeing
improvements that I have made to OSM data show up on my phone through this
app. I appreciate not having to pay through the nose for mobile data usage
if I want to look at a map on my phone when I travel to Canada.
I also just like mapping shopping centers and viewing the rendered results
on the OSM website:
